trying to keep the thieves away

There has been few thefts in NE Ohio recently, including my buddies 94 powerstroke allong with all his landscaping equipment. My question is, has anyone here rigged up a cut off switch to there trucks? By the way, anyone coming across a 94 F250, 7.3 5spd, 4x4 Black w/ red stripe (and some rust)and a Western plow undercarriage, kick the guy in the nuts and send me an email.

we have been pulling the fuse, but that's a pain in the ***. Would like to put a switch hidden under the dash or something. Just pulling the hot wire to the pump on the older trucks. We will putting a switch inline for those trucks.

Thanks for the great idea, would have never thought of that. All of our trucks are manual so that will work well.
